From the Leaking Faucet: LEGO Icons Pac-Man Arcade Machine (10315) Coming in June!

A purported image of the rumored LEGO Icons Pac-Man Arcade Machine set has been making rounds online, and it’s creating plenty of buzz among the LEGO fan community. This image, posted by reliable LEGO insider @Falconbricks via Twitter shows a miniaturized version of the iconic arcade machine. While the images are a bit blurry, it shows a classic cabinet arcade with three mini-builds of Pac-Man, Blinky, and Clyde.

The LEGO Icons Pac-Man Arcade Machine set is said to be part of the LEGO Icons portfolio and is rumored to clock in at 2,651 pieces with a price tag of $269.99 making it another pricier LEGO set that appeals to adult LEGO fans. It’s unclear whether this brick-built arcade machine will be functional, but with that price point, it is certainly expected to come up with plenty of play features and interactivity.

It is interesting to note that the price point of the LEGO Icons Pac-Man Arcade Machine is somewhat within the same price range as another brick-built classic, the LEGO Icons Atari 2600 (10306) from last year.  I can just imagine how good it will look to see these classic gaming superstars displayed alongside one another.

LEGO Icons Pac-Man Arcade Machine Release Date and Availability

This brick-built classic set is expected to be officially released on June 1, 2023. And though LEGO is yet to make an official announcement, we can be sure that an official reveal may happen anytime within the next couple of weeks. We’ll see if LEGO will also offer this as a pre-order deal which the company is fond of doing lately.

LEGO Icons Pac-Man Arcade Machine and Other Video Games Inspired Builds

LEGO has been making sets based on popular video games for a while now. Just last week, they announced a series of LEGO Sonic the Hedgehog sets in collaboration with Sega. And as of to date, LEGO video gamers can also expand their collection with Nintendo-inspired sets such as the highly interactive Super Mario series, and the brick-built Nintendo Entertainment System.

The Pac-Man Arcade Machine set is an exciting addition to Lego’s video game-themed sets. With its impressive piece count and interactive features, it is going to be a sure hit among LEGO and video gaming fans. Stay tuned for more updates as LEGO makes an official announcement about this set anytime soon.

21 Largest LEGO Mech Builds That You Can Add to Your Collection Today 

If you’re a fan of LEGO and mechs, then you may notice that LEGO mechs have been around for a long time and have always been popular among fans. But if you’re looking for the largest LEGO mech builds, then stay tuned because I’ve compiled a list of 21 of the biggest and most impressive ones you can add to your collection today. These builds range from towering titans from LEGO Monkie Kid to agile combat machines from LEGO Ninjago, each with its own unique style and design.

Tracing back the roots of these largest LEGO mech builds or sets goes way back to the time of LEGO classic themes. When LEGO launched its LEGO Space theme and introduced our very first Cybernaut (6951: Robot Command Center) made of LEGO in 1984, brick-built robots became a staple across LEGO themes and sets.

And if you’re a fan of these largest LEGO mech sets, then you have probably noticed that the past 5-7 years have seen a steady increase in the number of these largest LEGO mech builds. Simply put, there are a ton of amazing mech builds out there that you can add to your collection today.

LEGO bricks have always been associated with wonder and creativity, and the introduction of this largest LEGO mech set into the mix (as far as minifigures are concerned) has taken it to a whole new level. With the ability to create complex, articulated figures with hundreds of LEGO pieces, the possibilities are virtually endless.

And in case you’re wondering where we are right now in terms of LEGO mechs, you may also notice that the majority of these official LEGO mech sets are coming from homegrown themes such as LEGO Ninjago and LEGO Monkie Kid, and licensed ones such as LEGO Marvel Superheroes.

As a rule of thumb, I only considered those sets with more than a 700-piece count in this listing of the largest LEGO mech builds around. Most of these are still available at LEGO.com and Amazon, so if you’re interested to add them to your LEGO mech collection, then you may also click on their respective affiliate links below.

With that out of the way, let’s dive in and check this list of the largest LEGO mech sets out there.

WATCH: Where Can You Find the Hardest To Reach LEGO Store?

The LEGO Icons Land Rover Classic Defender 90 (10317) has just been revealed and to celebrate the occasion, LEGO dares us to travel what it refers to as the hardest to reach LEGO Store in the world. Well, that is for two highly competitive adventurers willing to take on the college.

Where Can You Find the Hardest to Reach LEGO Store?

The scene is somewhere in the remote Scottish Highlands, where two of the most adventurous travelers go head-to-head to be the first to land at the hardest to reach LEGO Store on the planet.

As you can see, it’s not the typical LEGO Store that we are used to. The LEGO Group came up with the idea of placing a brightly colored yellow Land Rover on top of the Scottish Highlands (complete with its iconic logo and signboard) and see who will be able to first reach this remote location.

It’s a showdown between two fierce adventurers – Raha Moharrak, the first Saudi woman to climb Mount Everest and the Seven Summits, as she takes on Aldo Kane, a native Scottish explorer and extreme locations expert, in a thrilling competition to reach the remote LEGO Store and build the new set. Watch this.

 

It’s a pretty cool marketing ad actually, keeping in line with the sense of awe and adventure that comes with the Land Rover brand. And now that we have another building set to celebrate the adventurer in us in the form of this latest brick-built offering, it’s time to grab those bricks again and embark on your very own building adventure.

10317 Lifestyle 01

The LEGO Icons Land Rover Classic Defender 90 (10317) is slated to arrive in (actual) LEGO Stores starting April 4, 2023. For more information, visit LEGO.com.

A similar LEGO Land Rover Defender (42110) set was released last year under the Technic theme. However, this recent offering gives it a more adventurous tone with its classic green sage look, and tons of traveling and camping gear.

The LEGO Icons Land Rover Classic Defender 90 (10317) comes in at 2,336 pieces and will be available starting April 4, 2023, retailing for $239.99. Read on for the set’s full product description and take a closer look.

More Details on How to Get the LEGO Icons Moving Truck GWP Set

Earlier last week, LEGO.com officially revealed the next gift-with-purchase set that we can expect following its LEGO City 4×4 Off-Road Ambulance Rescue (40582) promotional set. And if you’re looking forward to having the LEGO Icons Moving Truck GWP (or gift with purchase) set added to your latest modular set or any original creation in particular, then you’ll be glad to know that LEGO has already published the details on how we can get it.

Here’s How to Get the LEGO Icons Moving Truck GWP Set

As seen on LEGO.com’s Store Finder page, we can now confirm that you can have the LEGO Icons Moving Truck GWP added to your shopping cart for free when your LEGO purchase totals $180 or more.

LEGO Store Moving Truck GWP

The LEGO Icons Moving Truck GWP promo will run from February 21 to March 3, 2023, or until supplies last. What is great about this promo is that it does not limit your qualifying purchase to any particular LEGO product or theme, unlike the recent LEGO City 4×4 Off-Road Ambulance.

And because you’re not limited to any particular product, it means you have more flexibility in choosing your desired LEGO sets, especially those that are expected to be released starting March 1 such as the latest wave of LEGO Star Wars Helmets, Speed Champions sets, Disney BrickHeadz, and more. But if you’re still holding out on your bricks for this year’s modular set in the like of the LEGO Icons Jazz Club (10312), then it’s a great choice as well.

A Closer Look at the LEGO Icons The Lord of the Rings: Rivendell (10316) Set

After LEGO officially revealed its largest LEGO Icons set of the year, LEGO.com has been updated to include a listing of the LEGO Icons The Lord of the Rings: Rivendell (10316) set.

The Lord of the Rings: Rivendell (10316)

10316 alt2

Coming in at an impressive 6,167 pieces, this set comes in three sections giving it a sort of a modular set vibe. And though this might be this year’s most pricey set so far at $500, the attention to detail and the insane amount of minifigures that goes with it make it worth every penny for long-time LEGO LOTR fans.

And fans will surely not be disappointed with all the film references that this set has to offer. Divided into three sections, the first features the Council Ring, where the Fellowship debates on how to best destroy the One Ring. I love how the hotdog and popsicle pieces were cleverly used to build the gang’s chairs, including a generous number of plant pieces that adorned the surroundings.

The Lord of the Rings: Rivendell (10316)

This first section also includes a look at Frodo’s Bedroom, where he rests after being rescued from the Nazgul’s clutches. If you look closely, the designers of this set managed to have this minifigure version of Frodo sit on the bed despite his shorter legs, using a couple of headlight pieces. Plus a reference to Bilbo’s iconic Mithril chainmail is also included.

10316 alt9

The next portion is what I loved the most. Elrond’s study room prominently displays the Shards of Narsil using a new, broken sword element that perfectly captures the look and feel of the famous blade that struck the hand of the Dark Lord. This part of the set is also adorned with several paintings that depict the story of the elves and their valiant efforts to defeat Morgoth and Sauron.

10316 alt6

The second portion or section of this set features a stunning hall of unnamed Elven heroes of old. It consists of five gray minifigures, each with distinct features. This actually gives us a total of 21 minifigures in all plus the minifigure that is on display in Elrond’s study room.

The third section of the set highlights a gazebo overlooking a river and bridge, where the Fellowship gets ready to depart from Rivendell as they embark to destroy the Ring. The gazebo’s design is simply outstanding, highlighting the effective use of white LEGO pieces to recreate the immaculate glow and brightness of the place. Looking closely at this portion, the designers also used several toilet seat pieces as part of the gazebo’s roof.

The Lord of the Rings: Rivendell (10316) 10316 alt5 10316 alt3

And what perhaps is the most appealing feature of the LEGO Icons The Lord of the Rings: Rivendell (10316) set is the sheer number of LOTR minifigures added to it. We get to see newer versions of Gandalf the Grey, all four hobbits (Frodo Baggins, Samwise Gamgee, Merriadoc “Merry” Brandybuck, and Peregrin “Pippin” Took), Legolas, Gimli, Boromir, and Aragorn. There are also two additional Elven smiths, Arwen, Gloin, Elrond, and Bilbo Baggins. Based on what I read from early reviews, Bilbo’s minifigure features an alternate face that underscores his scary features when influenced by the Ring.

10316 alt10

The LEGO Icons Lord of the Ring: Rivendell has a hefty price tag of $499.99 and is scheduled to be released across all LEGO stores and online beginning March 8, 2023. And if you will purchase this set as a VIP member from March 5 to 7, you will also get a free  LEGO BrickHeadz Frodo, and Gollum (40630) set valued at $15

LEGO Icons The Lord of the Rings: Rivendell (10316) Makes a Grand Entrance

It looks like LEGO pulled out the One Set to Rule Them All. In an official press statement, the LEGO Group has just unveiled its long overdue LEGO Icons The Lord of the Rings: Rivendell (10316) set.

There are plenty of discussions within the LEGO community that points out the possibility of LEGO reviving this 2012 licensed theme, especially when a collection of LEGO BrickHeadz Lord of the Rings theme was introduced last December. And this time, the largest LOTR LEGO set – at 6,167 pieces – will vividly bring us back to Middle-Earth where the journey of the Fellowship of the Ring all began.

LEGO Icons The Lord of the Rings: Rivendell

The LEGO Icons The Lord of the Rings: Rivendell will retail for a whopping $500 and will be available starting March 8, 2023. Read LEGO’s official press release below. More details to follow.

LEGO® ICONS The Lord Of The Rings: Rivendell™, The one Lego Set to rule them all

7th February 2023: The LEGO Group, in partnership with Warner Bros.

This highly detailed, 6,167-piece set features the iconic Elven stronghold from Middle-earth and comes complete with 15 minifigures.

Home to the house of Elrond, Rivendell is a key location in Middle–earth and events of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, as the place where the Fellowship was formed and the quest to destroy the One Ring began.

The LEGO The Lord of the Rings: Rivendell set is packed with fan favorite moments and Easter eggs, and can be built in three sections including;

Section one, featuring:
• The Council Ring – complete with a semicircular ring of chairs for the council and the plinth where the ring is first revealed and the Fellowship discuss how to destroy it
• Frodo’s Bedroom – with a desk and chest where the young hobbit recovers following his rescue by Arwen from the hands of the Nazgûl, before being reunited with Bilbo
• Elrond’s study – with famous paintings from the history of Middle–earth

Section two, featuring:
• An elven tower – featuring five Elven statues of unnamed famous warriors from the past

They are joined by minifigures of Elrond, Arwen, Bilbo Baggins plus additional elves and a dwarf (Gloin) are also included.

Talking about the set, LEGO Design Master, Mike Psaiki said, “We know many of our fans have been anticipating a set like this for a long-time – but a great LEGO The Lord of the Rings set is never late, it arrives precisely when it means to! It was important to us that we created something really special in this recreation of Rivendell. We aimed to add as much detail as possible and create an engaging experience throughout the build to delight fans recreating scenes or proudly displaying Elrond’s home. We are really pleased with the final design and how we have brought Rivendell to life in brick form.”
